Medium-haul holiday destinations for pregnancy

Hi everyone!

I’be just started TTC, and would like to take a medium-haul trip later this year. I’m in Scandinavia, and wouldn’t like to fly more than 6/7 hours.

If I don’t end up being pregnant, I want to still enjoy the destination, so I don’t want a total fly and flop.

I want to avoid anywhere with Zika, dengue or other tropical diseases, which seems to write off a fairly big chunk of the world. And a destination with good medical care if needed of course. I’d also get a flexible ticket in case I needed to cancel.

So far, I’m considering;

  • Turkey
  • Egypt
  • Oman
  • Israel
  • Corsica
  • Cape Verde - though I think it’s had Zika outbreaks in the past
  • Mauritius - but it’s so far away

I love history, culture and trying local food. Not into resort-style/AI trips.

Would love anyone’s input on where they happily travelled during pregnancy since Zika became a thing.
